"It's hard to imagine a more useful and at the same time more imaginative selection of critical theory and theoretical texts than the ones gathered together in "Art In Theory.""
"Occasionally one comes across a book that is at once compelling and frightening, a book that excites and disorientates, a book with intimations of the sublime. "Art in Theory" is such a book. An indispensible source book." "Arlis News-Sheet"

"Harrison's and Wood's contribution to our understanding of art in this century seems likely to find its place on bookshelves and in bibliographies for many years." "Journal of Art & Design Education"
"Will be welcomed by teachers of art history, their students, and lay readers who are interested in the theories which have underpinned developments in the visual arts during the last century...

"An outstanding instrument with which to explore modern art theory." "Archis"From the Publisher:
Since it was first published in 1992, this book has become one of the leading anthologies of art theoretical texts in the English-speaking world. This expanded edition includes the fruits of recent research, involving a considerable amount of newly translated material from the entire period, together with additional texts from the last decades of the twentieth century.The features that made the first edition so successful have been retained:The volume provides comprehensive representation of the theories, which underpinned developments in the visual arts during the twentieth century.As well as writings by artists, the anthology includes texts by critics, philosophers, politicians and literary figures.The content is clearly structured into eight broadly chronological sections, starting with the legacy of symbolism and concluding with contemporary debates about the postmodern.The editors provide individual introductions to each of the 340 anthologised texts. Material new to this expanded edition includes texts on African art, on the Bauhaus and on the re-emergent avant-gardes of the period after the Second World War. Post-modernist debates are amplified by texts on gender, on installation and performance art, and on the increasing globalisation of culture.
